Let's get it straight
Let's get it straight from the top
You'll be getting with your usual main ingredient
You're good at talking
When you say it
Are you meaning it?

I don't wanna give you my heart
If you're not completing it
I'm blown away at how your family
Your friends just accept it though
No one's ever told you "no"
Can't expect you to know how to love
When it was somethin' you were never taught

But honesty
Is the one true way to start again
Just be good to yourself and love those unspoken
Instead of always broken
But honestly
When your heart decides
To let someone in
Just be cautious of the next one

You win
I never wanted to pay what was mean to screw me up
But I see you're into playing it
Makes me feel sorry for the way you like displaying it
Now the truth is really told
You are betraying it

I gotta say
I never felt you hold us up
Were you embarrassed by me?
Ohhh...
Somethin' I'm gonna have to pay for

But honesty
Shoulda been the one true way to start again
Just be straight with yourself and love those unspoken
Instead of always broken
But honestly
If your heart decides to feel again
Just be careful of the next one

How completely let down
How completely let down I feel
How completely in awe
When I can see it all
No I can see it all

But honesty
Coulda been the one true way to love again
Just be straight with yourself and love those unspoken
Instead of always broken
But honestly
If your heart decides to love again
Just be thankful for the next one
*Thankful, Thankful, Thankful* (x3)

I'm gonna see it all (x2)
I can't wait (x2)

I'm gonna keep it up (x2)
I can't wait (x2)

I'm gonna see it all (x2)
I can't wait (x2)

I'm gonna keep it up (x2)
I can't wait (x2)

I'm gonna see it all (x2)
I can't wait (x2)

I'm gonna keep it up (x2)
I can't wait (x2)

I'm gonna keep it up (x4)

Yeah, yeah, yeah
